One Last Plainsunset: An Interview

Even without releasing new tracks, the band managed to pull some of the biggest crowds as headliners for Baybeats 2016. This year marks their twentieth as a band — a remarkable feat that is in true fashion to the enduring quality of punk rock. They have recently released a new single, ‘6/4‘, which will be part of their upcoming album, “Both Boxer & Benjamin”.

Interview With Dexter: Beauty from Pain

Now, everyone has their own way to deal with a breakup. We all mope, drowning in self-pity and tubs of ice cream. Some go onto social media and share depressing or incredibly sulky and angry posts, some stay in and play angst-filled music with a glass of wine, and some people channel their hurt into their craft, creating beauty from pain: Taylor Swift and Adele come to mind when it comes to making millions art from breakups. DANamic.ORG spoke to Dexter Choo, a new name in Singapore’s local music scene. We caught up with him as he rides on the release of…

Interview With midst: An Ambient Gem Among Us

With just 3 singles made available online, midst have been raising a delicate storm with their exquisite offerings. Combining the chordal sensibilities of a baroque choral piece with the introspection of painfully self-aware indie artists, the 3-piece band are blessedly releasing their first body of work in an EP – arriving 23rd January 2016. Their debut single, “Captivate” ,certainly captivated audiences (sorry, we couldn’t resist) here and abroad. Released just last September, the track has garnered over 5,000 plays on YouTube – a laudable feat for a fresh-faced local act. Across what we’ve heard so far, midst’s atmospheric, “yoga retreat soundtrack” vibe…

Caracal: Chaos is their Art Form

We all know that post-hardcore bands are loud. “Loud”, in this sense, translates to colossal riffs and intense rhythms, complimented by lyrics that give us an idea of the band’s musical style. Singapore’s very own post-hardcore band Caracal have been loud with their music since 2007, but what makes them stand out is how they made sure to incorporate a sense of their identity to their songs. To Caracal, it’s not just about sounding different, unique, or simply loud. It’s about how each band member stays true to the self with raw notes and lyrics, notably observed in their latest album…
